African American Military History: The Lessor Known Contributors
Veteran and alumnus Dr. Hubert C. Jackson, Jr. presents “African American Military History: The Lessor Known Contributors.” Dr. Jackson shares the significant role African Americans played in the United States military in this on-demand webinar.
Dr. Jackson is a retired Army Master Sergeant with 24 years of service to his country. As he covered the globe on assignments, it became increasingly clear to him that the significant role African Americans played in the military to keep this country free was almost nonexistent.
He felt compelled to right this injustice. That quest led him to Union.
“I knew that if I was to be taken seriously as a historian and researcher, I needed a Ph.D. The doctoral degree conveys the greatest level of competence in your field of study,” Jackson said. “Union’s focus on interdisciplinary study offered the opportunity to expand and deepen my knowledge and expertise in a way I didn’t know existed. I found the faculty to have the greatest level of competency. They pushed me to think creatively and analytically. It has been one of the great experiences of my life. The intersection of social justice with the curriculum prepared me to tell the untold story of African Americans in the U.S. Military. I can now present the story in a research-based and factual way that cannot be disputed.”
Dr. Jackson received his Ph.D.in Philosophy in Interdisciplinary Studies in July 2022. Enjoy “African American Military History: The Lessor Known Contributors.”
